Fantastic performances, the screenplay has such details and nuances that only Vishal Bharadwaj could have brought to it…the music is awesome too. I think it’s one of the best movies of this decade easily. Smartly and sleekly made– it really involves you, from the start and the dark humour at certain points is so brilliant. I think any perceptive, thinking person would see what a gem of a movie it is….love it!

I know, through out it has been acclaimed as brilliant, but to me it looked as though it was being seen wearing dark sun glasses. I wish the movie was a little bright. This is not just my virw but most of them who did not like it was this being the reason. I know Vishal has made his moolah, he may not be bothered by this comment, but that what it is.

The hand held camera treatment was very shabby as compared to movies like ‘cloverfield’ or even ‘blair witch project’. The use of hand held camera is not so much of technology as it is a result of directing the camera itself. The bsudden blurs and the overall camera movments spoke more of self indulgence, than a carefully controlled result.

Vishal Bhardwaj outdid himself in Maqbool and Omkara. Blue umbrella was also nice, but with ‘Kaminey’ he has yet to achieve the big league. Quentin Tarantino he is definitely not.

Priyanka Chopra’s body language and expressions made her look like a top end model in a nau wari saree. She tried hard, but I could see her trying hard and thats the problem.

Shahid Kapoor did most of his stammering while looking off camera, mostly at the floor. I do not think he can ever look menacing or evil. He just does not have that face or presence.

Overall an average film. VB can do a lot better if he does not fill the film with ‘I’.

Though the end was not quit good, it could be far better but its trademark movie by Vishal Bhardwaj.

A must watch movie for those who love Shahid Kapoor.
